Costume Information

Cost : £3.00
Time Taken : 9 hours

Ok making this since Kaname is my fav character from FMP plus I have some fabric left over from Asuka school uniform which would be perfect for Kaname's skirt. Will start with the summer uniform but will try and make the winter uniform coz the jackets are so cute. Probably wear this to one of the parties at ame but not confirmed yet :)

This cosplay needs an a bit of work before it is reworn but nothing major:

- Change buttons
- Wash wig so it doesn't leak everywhere like last time
- Comb wig (it's looking a bit worse for wear)
- Put stiffener into skirt to help it hold it's shape
- Sew zip into skirt
- Remake sleeves and waistband - plus sew ribbon on to these.

Should only take half a day to do and possible wear this to hyper japan day

As predicted only took about three hours to alter - but is now complete - and have started working on her winter jacket to go with this outfit :D

Contant lenses and elastic. (Posted 18th April 2010)

Have for once ordered some contact lenses to wear with my cosplay. £15 by colourvue - not used this brand before so I'm hoping they'll fit my eyes better then the last pair I bought. Also ordered some thick elastic to line the sleeves - £2.10 for 3m.
